The horrors for Fujigaya and Senga

Catching up with some tidbits of news.

The first is that Senga Kento will be making his big screen debut in a horror film called Bilocation. The movie stars Mizukawa Asami and will also have Johnny's Junior Takada Sho in it.

It will be released in theaters in Japan in January, 2014.

Then for a more recent announcement, Fujigaya Taisuke will have the lead role in a drama SP, Hontou ni Atta Kowai Hanashi Natsu no Tokubetsuhen 2013. This is an annual SP that has five episodes in total but each episode tells a completely different story not connected to the rest. They will begin airing on August 17.

I am quite happy for Senga to get another acting role. I know that even though he will not get the same amount of pushing as KiFt he and Miyata Toshiya seem to have been set to get at least some pushing which makes the split look more like 3/2/2 than the 3/4. And that is a bit refreshing though it would be nice to see it be a bit more evened out, but at least it seems like a step in the right direction.

No surprise that Fujigaya is getting another lead role. It looks like he and Tamamori Yuta and set to be the members of the group that will be the drama leads. This is not a bad thing as it means that it is always a high chance that whatever drama they star in Kis-My-Ft2 will do the theme song for and we will get another single from them. It will be interesting to see if Kitayama Hiromitsu will be able to break out of the supporting role and become drama lead material as well.

And at this point I cannot help but wonder if Takada Sho will follow the path of Ikuta Toma and Kazama Shunsuke and become a Johnny's actor. He seems to be doing much more with acting than performing these days and it is not a bad path to take as those two have done well for themselves.
